Do you honor your scars?
We all have scars, some more visible than others. Dog bites. Skinned knees. Surgery scars. Stretch marks. Broken hearts. Cuts and scrapes, physical and emotional.
So often we hide our scars, ashamed to let them show. As if they make us less, mark us down like bruised fruit.
But our scars are part of who we are. Each on is a piece of our story. They are mementos of what we’ve survived, of how strong we are. We shouldn’t be ashamed of them. We should wear them proudly.
This video really touched my heart. The artist creates art from scars, which is not as weird as it sounds. Just watch.
Do you carry your scars as badges of honor or are you still struggling to accept them? How do your scars tell the story of you?
